Coronary angiography is the gold standard imaging modality during coronary interventions, but coronary angiogram has many limitations, catheter-based imaging modalities such as optical coherence tomography (OCT) have the potential to overcome these limitations, it plays a role in planning the procedure before stent implantation, it helps in optimizing the stent postprocedure and detecting mallapposition, edge dissection, but its role in coronary perforation has not been established in the literature, this is the first case reporting the OCT findings in a case of coronary perforation. This case highlights the fact that contained perforation can be diagnosed with the help of OCT, complimenting the coronary angiogram.
